What you will learn

  • The latest cyber-attack vectors and how to mitigate them.
  • The most targeted and vulnerable systems.
  • Best practices for securing physical systems against cyber-attacks.

The interconnected nature of modern security infrastructure makes it susceptible to cyber-attacks that can compromise access control, surveillance cameras, and other critical components. Hackers often exploit vulnerabilities in software, firmware, or network connections to gain unauthorized access to physical security systems.

Led by industry experts, this discussion will delve into the emerging cyber threats that are targeting physical security systems, how to mitigate them, and best practices to keep these systems secure moving forward.
